Kentucky Mining Accident Lawyers
Mining operations pose countless hazards. When negligence or a faulty product leads to an accident, it can cause catastrophic personal injury or death. At Garmer & Prather, we are committed to seeing that the responsible parties are held accountable.
Mining accident claims can involve a variety of circumstances, including mine collapses, explosions or detonation system accidents, and defective equipment. Even beyond the site of the mine, mining operations can pose a risk to employees or the general public. Coal trucks may be overloaded or the negligence of a truck driver may cause an accident. Homes, livelihoods, and even lives may be lost by mining operations gone awry.
Companies that run the region's coal mines are required to follow specific laws intended to keep their employees and others safe. The manufacturers of mining equipment know that they must ensure the safety of that equipment.
Garmer & Prather handles cases involving strip mines (surface mines), deep mines (underground mines), and personal injuries stemming from drag lines, electric shovels, roof collapses, blasting, cave-ins, dam breaks, and flooding, among others. We accept cases in which individuals have suffered serious bodily injury or death as a result of negligence of a third party.
